How do you know if there is no showstopper when you never do release 
candidates? So you just say "ah, thats fine now, lets call it release 
candidate". But when you find a bug in it, you rename it into a beta?

After all, they're release _candidates_, not _releases_. From my own 
experiences the weekly release candidate schedule was a very good idea. 

If you call it beta, then there will always sneak in something that breaks 
it. Been there already, happened more than once.
